There’s no limit to creativity and no barrier on music, so it comes as no surprise then that one half of one of India’s biggest electronica act – Midival Punditz would find himself itching to explore another side of himself and his work. Tapan Raj has come to be associated with cutting edge sound and left of centre thinking. A force to reckon with, he has been producing and performing both as a DJ and a live artist all over the world since 1997.

After establishing an unshakeable reputation for Midival Punditz, he has now decided to venture out solo as a side project and experiment with new sounds. After 4 studio albums and a multitude of licensed works across 70 compilations, TV series, films and video games worldwide with his band, Tapan’s new musical journey as a solo DJ and composer is fresh and evolutionary.

Starting out as a natural progression in his musical career, this project will also help Tapan express all his inspirations and leanings through his set. In this avatar, he wants to focus on all styles of electronic dance music that he has not explored with Midival Punditz before. This new style revolves around more instrumental electronic music with a deep emphasis on underground dance styles like break-beat, old school techno, acid house, DnB and mashups. But there’s no knowing where the project might lead him.

Never wanting to be pinned down to one style in his DJ sets or be pegged in one slot, Tapan is already creating waves with his eclectic style of performance. Tapan is now working on his ‘Mirror Image’ E.P. due for release in June 2014, so keep your ears peeled for his gigs around your city and watch closely as this Pundit carves out his own niche!
